As you know I am a big fan of adult colouring pages. I find colouring in a real release and they keep my hands busy whilst I am sitting and ensure that I can really shut off.
I suppose if my attempts at knitting or crochet had been more successful I would be doing that, instead I colour in! For me colouring in, is a way to express my creative side and is a great distraction from everyday life. I love the colouring books, but I also understand the value of free adult colouring pages.
Today I am sharing with you two plages from two fantastic new colouring books in the Art Therapy Range – Aztecs and Mayas: 100 Designs Colouring in and Relaxation and Buddhism: 100 Designs Colouring in and Relaxation.
Free Adult Colouring pages
I have been colouring in these two books and I have to say that I love that they are hardcover and also the paper is great quality, so if you want to use pens it doesn’t bleed through.

I am often asked what products I use and I am a big advocate of using the best supplies you can afford. It is really frustrating to use pencils that keep snapping or refuse to blend well, oh and don’t get me started on pens that bleed through the paper. I always buy the best quality I can afford, not just for me but for my kids too. I want colouring to be a joyful experience. These are mine and the
These are mine and the MiniMad’s suggestions to you. Our tried and tested favourites. When I first started colouring I just pinched the boy’s products, which is why adult colouring is so accessible and over the period of a year I now have my own supplies!
